So, this was the route I’d hoped we would use on Sat June 20th. Jack had the Friday off (in lieu of Independence Day) & we set off at about 20 past 8. The weather was nice; not too hot, such wind as there was from the north.
West on McConaha, the usual stop for Jack to adjust his derailleur this time at Dougherty Orchard (mile 17), up Washington rd, then east on Bond to Carlos & straight north for 7 miles. Lots of Amish out today on Carlos. Jack had to stop again for water at mile 30 on the trail & I stopped at Williamsburg for a much needed pee. The down the rest of the trail in the shade.
It was a good idea to spend the early part of the ride in the open going west & north and then the return in the shade of the trail [clockwise] (rather than do the opposite direction anti-clockwise, up the trail and down Carlos which I normally do in the evening).
